Get Just A Little Closer With
A Symphony From Heaven
A Symphony From Heaven is a collection of poems that speak to the whole-man. Your spirit will be stirred by the poetry and scripture references and your mind and emotions will relate to the commentary that gives insight into the poems and the author’s love affair with God.
As you read each poem you are gifted with glimpses of conversation between the author and the Holy Spirit that will inspire and invite you to experience the same type of relationship. The refreshingly pure deliverance of each poem catches the reader’s attention, giving them pause in their daily routine and causing them to give into the peace that surrounds them with each written line. The knowledge shared by the author is given throughout the commentary coupled with questions meant to provoke meditation on one’s own relationship with God.
There is one message that reverberates throughout the book: God wants a deeper and more intimate relationship with his children. Some of the 50 poems that fill this book may bring tears to your eyes; others, the smarting of conviction, and still some others, inspiration and the encouragement that comes from the conveyance of His grace and mercy, but not one duplicates the other or sounds redundant. They only speak one true message of the love of a Father for His children.
I once had a songbird that sang like a nightingale.
Pouring out its heart in its endeavor to become one with the mist,clouds, and energy of the sky a blue.
Oh how I long to join my heart with his in hopes of finding the key of freedomfrom this cage I continuously find myself entrapped.
Holding onto the bars, watching life go by.
Reaching out to grasp what is so close yet still out of my reach.
The frustration that is lifted with ink only to return with idle hands and clocks that are slow upon their job.
The mind that finds adventure in life amongst others rejoicesand is all too soon sent back to its nest to take up hibernation in a cold den, wishing for the warmth of a fire too long ago extinguished.
Don’t deny the depth of your yearnings.
For wanting, hungering and searching is only a way for inspiring greatness.
Awakening is timed just as sleep is encumbered.
Life is lived with or without regret, but is always lived for more than one’s self.
Isaiah 61:1-3 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, 2 to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, 3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion – to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.
The devil is always on his job. He roams this earth in search of ways to steal, kill and destroy you and yours.
Since he can’t be everywhere at once he assigns demons to observe your every move, especially if he feels you are a threat to the advancement of his kingdom of darkness.
Their job is to keep you in bondage. The bondage? Anything that will hinder you from having a happy, Holy-filled and prosperous life.
These are the chains and cages I often cried out from, wishing to be free. I might have been free to go where I wanted to in the world, but I was just as bound and held by fear, anger, hopelessness, intimidation and frustration as if I were physically incarcerated.
That’s when I began to understand that you could have an abundance of money and go anywhere you wanted to, but have less freedom than a person incarcerated with a sound mind stayed on the Lord. Where the Spirit is there is liberty. Where have you traveled today that your feet could not take you? What is freedom to you?
